NAME: Will Phillips
DISCIPLINE: Bachelor of Audio
What do you most enjoy about student life at SAE?
For me, it is definitely the people. It is amazing to be able to buckle down in the trenches with some of the most highly skillful and developing students. Some of my times in the study rooms getting to know students from other disciplines have been the most valuable moments of my student life at SAE.
What are your plans for when you graduate?
To bring my skills in audio post-production into the world of film. I have always been passionate about film equally to Audio and believe that there is still so much to accomplish when these two mediums are combined.
What is your favourite software?
I definitely believe that different software can be good for different things. However, if I had to pick one software that can get the job done for every type of task, I would have to pick Apple’s Logic Pro X. The capabilities not only in sound for a picture but also in music-making are unbeatable.
Do you have any helpful tips to share with fellow students?
A helpful tip that I would give is to go out of your way to meet as many people as possible. There are not many times in life where you get to be surrounded by such talented people at the beginning of their careers.
Who are 3 people you would invite to dinner, dead or alive?
Jonas Lindstroem – Director at ICONOCLAST
Hans Zimmer – Composer
Riccardo Tisci – Chief creative officer for Burberry Group
